Management of Patients with Respiratory Dysfunction

CORRESPONDENCE COURSE

U.S. ARMY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT CENTER AND SCHOOL

SUBCOURSE MD0542 EDITION 200

MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS WITH RESPIRATORY DYSFUNCTION

This subcourse presents a review of the respiratory system, devices such as the oralpharyngeal airway and bag-valve-mask (BVM) systems which are used to assist a patient's breathing efforts, procedures for supplying the patient with additional oxygen through the use of the face mask and nasal prongs, and procedures for removing secretions interfering with breathing through the use of suction.

Successful completion of this subcourse does not mean that you are ready to begin managing patients with respiratory dysfunctions. You must still be trained under the supervision of a person who is qualified to instruct you in these processes, supervise your practice, and carefully evaluate your skills and abilities.
